Washington Criticizes Burma's Treatment of Pro-Democracy Activists


The United States has expressed concern for a second straight day over the treatment of Burmese pro-democracy activists by the country's military government.

In a statement Friday, the U.S. State Department said the United States is "deeply concerned" about a reported increase in harassment of Burma's democratic opposition. The statement says the Rangoon government has a responsibility to protect the safety and security of all Burmese citizens.

On Thursday, the United States faulted Burma's military government for continuing to ignore international requests to investigate a two-year-old attack on pro-democracy activists, and the resulting house arrest of National League for Democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi.

Washington's criticism of Burma's rulers comes as the pro-democracy opposition mark the 15th anniversary of its landslide election victory, which the military government never recognized.
